The Introduction to French Phonology course provides additional drills for those who wish to sound like a native speaker of the language. The course may be used beneficially at any stage of learning the language. It is invaluable for those who are already masters of the language but who wish to speak it better.
"In its use at the FSI it serves as the initial syllabus for beginning students, preceding the French Basic Course. It is the exclusive syllabus for the first three to six weeks of full time French instruction for beginning students."
